The TruDefender FTX is an FTIR spectrometer for the identification of unknown chemicals. It analyzes chemicals, drugs, explosives and also dark and fluorescent substances. As a result, it ideally complements the FirstDefender RM mobile Raman spectrometer. The head of the TruDefender is equipped with a small stamp. This allows comfortable work with flexible pressure. Powder and liquid samples in particular can be positioned easily. The TruDefender was specially developed for the harsh conditions of field work. It can also be operated and easily decontaminated while wearing a protective suit.
